Monday, 9.40am - BUDDING historian Cai Green, from Grantham, is through to the finals of English Heritage's national competition to find the Young History Presenter of the Future.The 10-year-old's video entry about William the Conqueror won him one of 10 places at a presenting boot camp with presenter Dan Snow.
Cai will travel to Wellington Arch, in London, on Monday to meet Mr Snow and receive tips on how to be a good television presenter and help to create his own professional show reel.
Then judges will review each of the finalists' work and select a winner who will present a one-off history programme on the English Heritage TV channel EHTV.
Cai said: "I can't wait to get to Wellington Arch to show the judges what I can do. I love history and it would be a dream come true to present a film on EHTV.
"I chose to make my video about William the Conqueror who was very brave and strong and did loads of amazing things, but also had a nasty side."
Sarah-Jane Morris, from English Heritage, said the standard of competition entries was high.
She said: "Cai's video particularly stood out, engaging us right from the start and his enthusiasm for the subject was simply infectious – Cai was a clear finalist."
